Klorane Dry Shampoo Natural Tint & Leave-in Spray with Flax Fiber review | For lazy Sunday mornings

Klorane sunday morning dry shampoo brown dark hair review

The products: Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk (Brown to Dark Hair) and Leave-in Spray with Flax Fiber

What’s that, you say? It’s not Sunday morning?

Well, no. Not even a little bit. But I’m crabby and sleepy and I’ve had strep throat for going on three weeks now, so you can shut your pretty, beautiful face and imagine that it is, in fact, Sunday. Because these two products are great for a Sunday morning, or for any other morning that you’re short on time or energy and just want to take it easy and still end up with great hair.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Natural Shade ($20 USD/$24 CAD)

The one Klorane product that you NEED (yes, need) to own is their dry shampoo. Everyone keeps telling me that it’s the best, and after all this time, I can finally confirm that, yes, it’s the best. (Way better than Colab, even, thanks to the scent.)

They make four: a green-lidded one with nettle (Oil Absorbing Dry Shampoo), this one (Natural Shade Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk), their Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract, and the non-aerosol Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. The non-aerosol powder and the tinted aerosol (this one) are the only ones that are silicone-free, so be careful when you purchase!

I couldn’t get to a legendary seven days with this stuff, but I love it all the same. It smells fantastic; a very clean, subtle scent (sort of a powdery-floral), and applies as a sheer, even veil of light brown powder. You’re supposed to leave it on for 2 minutes and then brush thoroughly, but in a pinch, I find that it works just as well to simply spray on as you head out the door and then tousle lightly on the train.

This stuff is so good that if I apply it on second-day hair, my third-day hair still looks like first-day hair when I wake up. It’s that good. It makes hair look at feel clean, and adds just a touch of volume without making my hair feel gritty.

Klorane Leave-in Spray with Flax Fiber ($16 USD/$20 CAD)

Klorane operates on the very cool concept of one problem/one plant, and for volume, it’s flax fiber. (For gentle balancing/second-day-hair, it’s oat milk.) Tracy from Beauty Reflections really loves this one, and when she mentioned that it doesn’t feel like anything at all on the hair, she had me.

When Klorane figured out that flax was naturally soluble, they put it in their volumizing products to provide actual, physical plant-lift to the hair. But while I think this one is a dream to use (it smells lovely, like a very subtle veil of perfume, and has a really solid, even mister) and looks awesome on Tracy, it didn’t quite work for me.

Check this one out if you have short or fine limp hair, but skip it if you want instant volume for stick-straight Asian hair. Unlike what it does for Tracy (which looks awesome and natural; I’ve seen it in person and can attest to this), it doesn’t give me much in terms of air-dried root lift.

It does get major points for touch-invisibility, though, so give it a look if you’re willing to put in the styling time but want something 100% non-sticky and non-gritty!

Klorane dry shampoo leave in spray review

The verdict?

The Klorane Leave-in Spray with Flax Fiber feels touchably natural, but unless you have fine, limp hair (not just straight/limp hair), it’s not an instant fix-it.

The Natural Tint Dry Shampoo, on the other hand, is a total must-have. It’s a little bit pricy, but the next time you’re due in for a hair treat, you need to try this!! It absorbs oil like a champ, has the best scent of any dry shampoo I’ve ever tried (light, pretty, and clean-smelling), and makes hair look and feel clean.

    Thanks for the mention my friend! Awww, too bad it didn't work for you! I can't live without that stuff now. Makes a difference on my thin bangs for sure especially when I blow-dry them(but that's rare). And thanks haha-I think YOUR hair is awesome and so PRETTY, so whatever you use for it works! But you know, I haven't tried the dry shampoo! Marky loves this one, but I rarely use dry shampoos. When you have curly hair they tend to just frizz up your hair. Think this one won't do that?

    • Always <3 <3 <3

      I'm really bummed that the flax spray didn't work as well for me, too! It gives a good feeling of "fullness"/density if I take the time to style after spraying a bunch of it into my roots, but I get nothing if I just let it air dry. It's a bummer!

      And aww, thanks girl. I feel like I just have month after month of bad hair days, so I always get all weird and giddy when someone tells me my hair is pretty :p :p

      I say give the dry shampoo a go. Steal a spritz of Marky's when you see her next! ;) A lot of the frizziness is probably coming from the grit that dry shampoos leave behind, and this one gives a tiny bit of texture but still leaves your hair smooooth. (Have you tried the CoLab? That one doesn't impart any texture at all; it might work well for you. I'll set aside my extra one for you!)

      • beautyreflections2013

        Yeah Maybe my curly hair makes a diff with air drying! Cause it still gives me volume and most days I air dry.

        ALWAYS pretty–your hair is like WOW dude!

        I will try hers! I have that Co-lab sitting here somewhere…I'll give it a shot! I was scared to, since most frizz me up! Thanks! xx

        • Awww! I feel like my heart just grew three sizes. Which I know isn't how it worked for the Grinch, but still. Much happy; many smiles.

          Curly hair TOTALLY makes a difference for air drying. I always forget that your hair is naturally curly for some reason!! But yeah; it's next to impossible to get good root lift without naturally curly hair — you really need to style it in there (preferably with heat), even if you have a lot of hair.

          The silver or the black Colab? Because the silver bottles are GREAT but I absolutely hated the black (volume extreme/intense/whatever) ones. Hated!! They left my hair feeling so dirty and gritty.

          • beautyreflections2013

            LOL you are no Grinch! If you are you sure is a pretty one! With the best hair ever haha!
            and whaddaya mean? His heart DID grow hahahaha…I swear mine shrinks and grows depending on what happened that day…. :P
            I have two bottles? So not sure? But I will try the one that isn't black haha. And I'm seeing that Marky this Sunday, so I will steal her Klorane LOL!

            My recent post Klorane Mask with Desert Date- A Treat For Your Hair

          • Heh. But mine isn't growing because I'm learning how to not be a Grinch; mine's growing because you're being so kind and lovely! :p

            Oh dude I totally wasn't clear enough on that. OKAY so when you try them, make sure to try a bottle that is mainly silver (rather than mainly black or mainly green). It should have "Sheer Invisible" written on it somewhere I think. And try London if you can, not Rio — Rio smells like migraines and despair.

            And then (most importantly of all,) let me know how it goes!!! I hope we can make another dry shampoo convert out of you — preferably Klorane, because that stuff is awesome. ;)

          • beautyreflections2013

            Hahahaha, ok silver London! Got it!
            And I hope so! If one of them doesn't make my hair a frizz bomb then wahoo!

    Oh Rae! Thanks for this review so much! I have to be really dumb to not see/know that the famous Klorane dry shampoo comes in a tinted version as well!! For so many years I didn't pick it up for the dreaded grey hair scare sh*t! lol! I think I am going to track down both the products, the dry shampoo for me and the spray for mum. She has very fine and limp hair like you mentioned and hopefully this'll her give her hair some volume and body! x

  • whatandydidnext

    I still haven't tried their dry shampoo but I feel like I'm going to have to now. I used to love Batiste, but I'm not digging the strong scent and dodgy white roots tbh

    • You MUST. Klorane does scents so well — both of these are spot-on in terms of intensity (very light) and formulation (nothing harsh or astringent, but still very clean-smelling)!

  • But dude, why wouldn't you want to wash your hair for 7 days? Here, it gets so hot I'm tempted to wash my hair twice a day! Even when I don't use shampoo, I like to wet my hair, just because it's, you know, so darn hot! When I was studying in Australia, I still washed my hair regularly in winter.
    Actually, that's probably why dry shampoos are like dinosaurs here. Can't find them when I wanted them. LOL! I do use Batiste for emergency, but I've been reading so many good things about Klorane I'm now so curious. Too bad they aren't available here.
